EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides individuals such as CSOs and VPs of Environment with an independent analysis of the United States Department of Defense’s (DoD) sustainability strategy. As the US’s single largest consumer of energy, the DoD spent $15.4 billion on energy consumption in 2010 across both its operations and fixed installations, making energy its top priority within its sustainability strategy. Verdantix finds that the DoD’s sustainability initiatives showcase the deployment of large-scale energy efficiency strategies and renewable energy measures, implementing decision-making tools, demand management solutions, management frameworks, microgrids and energy storage, and wind and solar generation. This enterprise-wide implementation of sustainability and energy management provides large firms aiming to scale up their energy management programmes with useful lessons on financing, research and development, and standardized decision making.
